Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help with organising our away day at Dalton Ellis Hall. Everything ran very smoothly-the staff were very helpful and friendly and the lunch was delicious. I'm sure we will be coming again for events in the future.Rachael McGraw, Head of Communications, Division of Communications and Marketing, The University of Manchester

About the venue

Dalton Ellis Hall is a particularly popular venue for training and away days, as it gives organisers the flexibility of a range of meeting rooms conveniently located near to one another, including the Dalton Suite which has three interconnecting rooms with air conditioning.

The Pagoda dining room, so called because of its high roof and extensive windows, has a light, airy atmosphere with the adjacent Ellis room available for private dining for 20.

Facilities are provided in three modernised Victorian buildings and six other residential blocks.

The hall is set in 4.5 acres of landscaped grounds and its proximity to the city centre and the main University campus, and free parking, make this venue easily accessible.
